  1. I already feel limited by the lack of legato which I need 75% of the time and the Symphony Essentials don't have true legato;
  2. That's 1500$US though... for the "series" otherwise no legato. Not ready to pay that much hahah
  3. What's the difference between the VSL version included with Kontakt 5 and the VSL Pack 1 mentionned above, beside the obvious lack of legato ? Would you still suggest getting the VSL Pack if I already got the K5 bundle ? I beleive it's possible to script the legato with the bundled version, right ? Kontakt / VSL ... most amazing thing I bought this year. I can run 600 track projects without a hiccup.. I say forget Miroslav btw, that's what I've used for years unfortunately and it's not good. Big differences in volumes, horrible interface and browsing, 32 bit.
  4. What do you guys use for reverb ? I want a convulsion reverb but don't want to pay 500$... I plan on using it for guitars, drums and orchestral, and to create ambiances... I got a ton of IRs but only have those cab simulator IR loaders (I guess it doesn't matter) and the Reaper's Verbate thing to load them. For "fake" reverb, I'm currently looking at this; and really tempted to grab it right now with the 75% off deal
  5. Got Kontakt 5 for half the price... finally ! Good bye Ik Multimedia ! hahah 140 products at 50% on NI until the 1st.
  6. Just saw this on FB, I'd enroll if I had some time off but really can't. I'm sure some one you will tho !
  7. I'll save $ for K11 ultimate then lol
  8. Komplete 10 - Where to get it with a Black Friday discount ?
  9. I don't mind ads... (thanks, AdBlock Plus!). Keep the pennies you made with the 120k views I got with OCR (if any) ... it's only gonna help keep stuff on the servers or something. Why such a drama ? (No, I haven't read the 6 pages here lol).
  10. Thought you guys would like this trailer :
  11. I've only played Zelda 1, Link to the Past and OoT (completed the games, many times). I mean I touched Zelda 2, Majora's Mask and Windwaker just a few hours, but don't feel like I missed much. What are the solid ones I need to play to catch up ? I don't have a GameCube or a Wii-x-whatever but would like to play them on a single system. I'm definatly gonna get the new Nintendo and the Breath of the Wild tho
  12. LMAO I quoted you from 2012, well it's jandrews15's fault.
  13. Reaper is a total beast. It's missing just a few things (that aren't a reason not to go with Reaper anyway) ; there's only one instrument. It's a simple synth with sine/square/triangle waves, but you can basically make a very cool synth with that if you combine other stuff. I'd definatly go with Reaper and put my money in Kontakt if I were you (and if I could start from scratch). Reason is a gem that comes from another planet it seems, with an Apple-ish philosophy somehow; like it's been said you cannot host VSTs. However, you can 1) send midi out of it to Reaper and compose in Reason but trigger the sounds in Reaper. 2) Use the "ReWire" protocol, but then you can only record midi and no audio in Reason. 3) if you have multiple outputs/inputs you can just send the audio from Reaper to Reason. Do you really want to deal with such an hassle ? That's what I do right now, cause despite the compromise I love Reason and been using it since version 4, but think again or you might regret it, the workflow isn't for everyone either. But when I don't need a VST, the rabbit hole goes far with Reason. I use this version : link1. And this is the upcomming one : link2.
  14. In most cases, MACs are for noobs and hipsters who don't know anything about computers and got sold a dream. More or less. There's nothing exclusive to Mac that's worth it. Logic and Final ? lmao like there's no better alternative... If you use it because you're used to a workflow, fine, but if you're just like "macs are better", well, you are free to hold on your convinctions. The "no virus, no bug, better hardware, better os" is pure bullshit. Note though, I'm not saying Macs are bad. This said, your friend is a noob. I bet she's vegan
